Decoding NCDs for a healthy new Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe Medical Association has held a health expo in Harare today focusing on the issues to do with Non communicable diseases (NCDs).

In an interview with ZimOnline, Sharon Rusare one of the organisers from the Zimbabwe Medical Association said the Expo was to educate citizens about NCDs that are on the rise in the country.

She highlighted that some of the diseases that are non-communicable include cancer, sugar diabetes and high blood pressure and people must take care of their health because some of these ailments are caused by the way people live, eat and drug abuse.

The expo was attended by many organisations which include Cimas, Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe, National Blood Services of Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Health Services among others.

In an Interview with ZimOnline News, Major Anderson Chaya said that they were franchising their brand since it was involved in the health related issues of the military.

At the expo the Zimbabwe Defence Forces health services were checking the levels of high blood pressure to those who wanted to get checked.

Specialists from the male circumcision were also present and were educating people about prostate cancer and also male circumcision.

The occasion was a crowd puller due to its multi-talented Master of ceremonies, those who were moving around ended up going for enquiries on different stands that were present.
